COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly brewed by Mikkeller at Nøgne Ø, Norway, now at Lervig, Norway.
This imperial Oatmeal stout is brewed with one of the world’s most expensive coffees, made from droppings of weasel-like civetcats. The fussy Southeast Asian animals only eat the best and ripest coffee berries.Enzymes in their digestive system help to break down the bean. Workers collect the bean-containing droppings for Civet or Weasel Coffee. The exceedingly rare Civet Coffee has a strong taste and an even stronger aroma.
Ingredients : Water, malts, hops, yeast and Vietnamese ca phe chon coffee.

Bottle from Dave. Thanks dude! Delicious ... Boasts a gigantic lacy head. aroma is sweet vanilla and roasted malts. Flavor is to die for w/ a huge burnt coffee and lingering bitterness ... smothered in chocolate. Plays between sweet and roasty dry. Palate is perfect - thick body and smooth on the edges. Incredible beer ... I doubt it will get any better than it is now.

It pours thick black with a minimal brown head. Original "speckled lacing", which match the weasel pictured on its label. Aroma is roasted malts and coffee. Taste is very complex with this beautiful and strong coffee backbone (and the use the top quality civet coffee here, that known as Kopi Luwak in Indonesia and Cà phê chồn in Vietnam), which provides a hint of chocolate as well. Notes of vanilla and licorice are present as well. Alcohool well hidden. A full bodied joy for who loves both stouts and coffee. Absolute master piece!

330ml. Bottle at home. pours black with a tiny fast diminishing brown head. aromas of liquorice and roasted chocolate, and coffee. Heavy taste: Coffee, liquorice, and sweet notes. Taste is long lasting and the aftertaste comes with a taste of alchohol. Great full body, with medium to high carbonation.

Bardzo dobre piwo. Zawiódł mnie tylko jego wygląd (brak piany przy nalewaniu przede wszystkim). Piłem wiele piw z kawą, ale żadne z nich nie miało takiego smaku i aromatu jak te. Świetna faktura, lekka paloność i przyjemna gorycz. Aż kusi mnie żeby spróbować Kopi Luwak...

Rating #1896 - 2015.09.20 - Bottle. Black as civet cat shit (assumed, not witnessed) with almost no tan cap. Aroma is heavy roast malts,chocolate, espresso, mild molasses notes,Taste is heavy on roast malt and coffee flavours, very mild sweetness of cocoa, coffee, smoky/woodiness. For 10.9%, the alcohol heat is less pronounced than expected. Wondrous.

Bottle. Black with almost no carbonation. Aroma of coffee, licorice, chocolate and booze. Taste reflects the aroma, but with vanilla as well. A fine bitter ending. A very, very good beer. Just amazing...

butelka, warka do 13/05/2026. sniadaniowo, niedzielnie :) juz przy nalewaniu widac, ze piwo jest z tych gesto-lepko-oleistych, praktycznie czarne, piana ladna, szybko opadajaca do obraczki, zostajaca na szkle. Aromat... o fok :) kazde kolejne wypite piwo utrudnia kolejnym zrobienie efektu Wow! ale tu byl - megaintensywnie, glownie kawa, jako podstawowa nuta, ale rowniez intensywne i jednoznaczne aromaty waniliowe (duzo wanilii, poza kawa czy tez obok niej - dominujaca nuta), czekoladowe, pralinkowe, sliwek w czekoladzie, suszonych fig, palonosci, pumpernikla... pewnie jeszcze kilku rzeczy ;) karmel? porto lub rum? lukrecja? migdaly? zboze? takie troche zgadywanie, bo wszystko to powyzej jest tak poukladane (mimo, ze to wszak swieza warka), ze ciezko wyodrebnic. w ustach na dziendobry dwa podstawowe wrazenia: slodkosc (ale taka nie cukrowa, miodowa, karmelowa, tylko taka pralinkowo-waniliowo-bombonierkowo-alkoholowa) oraz konsystencja... ta konsystencja jest strasznie fajna - to piwo jest ewidentnie geste, pelne ciala, ale zarazem przymuszajace do kolejnych lykow. jest nieco oleiste, jest wyraznie lepkie, jest tez gladkie... wysycenie nieskie, ale nie bardzo niskie jak nieraz w RIS’ach, alkohol z jednej strony dobrze ukryty a z drugiej ten co czuc, czuc w aromacie i smaku jako jakis szlachetny, slodki destylat. wszystko jest do tego wszystkiego bardzo zrownowazone, zbalansowane. ewidentnie ekstraklasa swiatowa. i to jest wersja bez beczki! mozna? mozna.

Niewielka, brązowa pianka, drobna, ale szybko opadająca do zera. Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta. Intensywny aromat świeżej, delikatnie palonej kawy, ziaren kakaowca, gorzkiej czekolady, pralin, trufli i jagód... W smaku równie intensywne i równie przyjemne, półsłodkie, gęste, oleiste, likierowe, przy czym alkohol pięknie wkomponowany w całość. Posmaki długie, palone, rumowe, waniliowe. Goryczka średnia, palona. Wysycenie niskie.
Cudowny RIS, genialnie zbalansowany i jednocześnie bardzo intensywny, treściwy, pełny, gęsty, aksamitny od owsa... Klasa!

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2016 Bottle, 10.6% vol. Pours thin brown head, which dissapears quickly. Aroma is sweetness and coffee in a great harmony, with a smoked twist. Taste is strong coffee, liqourice and a pleasant bitterness from beginning to end. Great and refreshing just like a morning coffee.
